and I am very sad to have to leave

I usually describe myself as a ‘cultural’ historian, an adjective that raised eyebrows when I joined the History Faculty in Cambridge in 1979, but became normal and even fashionable by the 1990s.
I came to Emmanuel in 1984 to read Mathematics, and have been here in various guises ever since.
